Hold
Walgreens Boots Alliance downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut downgraded Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) to Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $65 from $85. The stock closed yesterday down 10%, or $6.56, to $59.70. Amazon's (AMZN) acquisition of mail order pharmacy PillPack has "enlarged the overhang" on the retail pharmacy space, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the deal could prevent both Walgreens and CVS Health (CVS) from seeing meaningful stock upside near-term. Further, Walgreens' Q3 results, which saw "weak" same-store-sales trends, do not help diffuse the perceived risk that Amazon brings to the company, Tanquilut argues.

Buy
CVS Health assumed to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe upgraded CVS Health (CVS) to Buy after assuming coverage of the name. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $81 from $68. While the execution of an integrated healthcare superstore post the pending Aetna (AET) acquisition may be a long way off, the concept will resonate with employers and individuals, Giacobbe tells investors in a research note. He believes deal integration and competitive Amazon (AMZN) risk are "somewhat overstated particularly in the context of heavily discounted valuation."

Outperform
CVS Health price target lowered to $84 from $91 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst George Hill lowered his price target on CVS Health Corp (CVS) to $84 after Amazon (AMZN) announced its entry into the pharmacy space with the acquisition of PillPack, even though he believes that the "stickiness of payer/pharmacy relationships, decreasing share of mail order, and PillPack's market share" will not cut margins in near to medium term. Hill keeps his Outperform rating on CVS, noting that it is better positioned to continue to grow its EBIT than Walgreens (WBA). The analyst also sees Amazon's entry into drug distribution raising the possibility of DOJ approval of CVS's Aetna (AET) acquisition.

CVS, Express Scripts should be bought on recent selloff, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes recommends buying shares of CVS Health (CVS) and Express Scripts (ESRX) on weakness related to the announcement Amazon (AMZN) is entering the pharmacy space with its acquisition of PillPack. PillPack is a small mail order pharmacy, similar to the mail order pharmacies embedded in CVS Caremark, Express Scripts and OptumRx, Hynes tells investors in a research note.

Risk adjuster suspension positive for Centene and Molina, says Piper Jaffray
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services suspending risk adjusters for the health exchange will likely cost the government and consumers more, but it could be positive for Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH), Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. Both companies are in a net payable position for 2017 and not having to pay these funds would allow the plans to retain cash, the analyst adds. James also sees a positive read-through for UnitedHealth (UNH), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI). The analyst finds it most likely that CMS will seek to adjust the risk adjusters in the end rather than cancel the program, but she adds the agency only has a few weeks for them to sort this out, which she feels is not enough time.

Buy Natera shares on any potential post-Aetna weakness, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Alexander Nowak says news that Aetna (AET) updated its prenatal testing medical policy, deciding not to cover average risk testing, is "disappointing" given ACOG's recent stance change on average risk, telling investors he believes Aetna's decision adds risk to UnitedHealth's (UNH) upcoming review, which is scheduled for early 2019. Nowak says he continues to like the Natera (NTRA) story and long-term potential and would be buying shares on any possible post-Aetna weakness.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. BOFA UPGRADES AT&T TO BUY: Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded AT&T (T) to Buy from Neutral as analyst David Barden is positive on AT&T's 20-year low P/E multiple, Timer Warner merger benefits, favorable emerging wireless business trends, and a call option on value extraction from the merger of AT&T's distribution network with Time Warner's content and ad inventory. He keeps a $37 price target on AT&T shares. DEUTSCHE UPS JUNIPER IN 'CONTRARIAN' CALL: Deutsche Bank analyst Vijay Bhagavath upgraded Juniper Networks (JNPR) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $32 from $25. The analyst said he's "going against the grain" and making a "contrarian call." The post-earnings selloff on the "better than feared" Q2 results and below consensus Q3 guidance, which is primarily related to switch router upgrade timing at a handful of cloud and service provider customers, provides a "reasonable entry point." He believes "robust" switch router and next generation security refresh cycles will start in fiscal 2019 and that Juniper's fundamentals will improve from FY19 through FY21. STIFEL CUTS SYNCHRONOS TO SELL: Stifel analyst Tom Roderick downgraded Synchronoss (SNCR) to Sell from Hold, stating that recent filings reveal that liquidity issues loom, the company is "out of levers, and time is not on their side." The turnaround required to keep the company from fundraising "feels Herculean," added Roderick, who lowered his price target on Synchronoss shares to $3 from $8. BUCKINGHAM SAYS FORCED SALE OF CHARTER ASSETS 'UNLIKELY': Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan noted that New York's Public Service Commission has moved to push Charter (CHTR) out of the state and presented the company with a 60 day ultimatum to find a buyer for its assets there due to what it views as "repeated failures" to honor its commitments around the 2016 merger with Time Warner Cable. While he thinks an extended court battle seems "virtually certain," Harrigan does not see much likelihood of any forced disposition of its New York State assets. He keeps a Buy rating and $397 price target on Charter shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AT&T (T) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst David Barden saying he is positive on AT&T's 20-year low P/E multiple, Timer Warner (TWX) merger benefits of earnings accretion and expanding cash, favorable emerging wireless business trends, and a call option on value extraction from the merger of AT&T's distribution network with Time Warner's content and ad inventory. 2. American Airlines (AAL) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. 3. Avis Budget (CAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast. 4. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Biju Perincheril citing the recent weakness in the shares but he also feels the risk/reward is attractive with many projects providing production growth over the next two years along with accelerating free cash flow generation. 5. Juniper (JNPR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Vijay Bhagavath saying he's "going against the grain" and making a "contrarian call." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
